Microsoft Claims Partnership Creates 1,000 .Net Platforms

Microsoft and HP invested $50 million in their partnership to accelerate acceptance of .Net.

Executives with Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft have disclosed that a 2-year-old partnership created to promote the use of .Net for Web services has resulted in the installation of 1,000 .Net platforms at the sites of 700 customers.

"Our joint commitment, energy, and activity have started to pay off," says Nora Denzel, senior VP and general manager for HP's Adaptive Enterprise unit.

The two companies unveiled the .Net initiative in September 2002, along with a $50 million joint investment aimed at accelerating .Net in the market.

HP's .Net-based portfolio includes cross-industry and industry-specific products, Denzel says. The product incorporates Microsoft's Windows Server 2003, the .Net framework, BizTalk Server 2004, SQL Server 2000, and SharePoint Portal Server.

The HP products run on its ProLiant and Integrity servers, ProLiant server blades, and StorageWorks.
